Modern master Pablo Picasso's views on art are outrageous and iconoclastic. He was generally reticent on the subject of the work of others, preferring to joke rather than discuss. And he was true to form in the interviews in this volume. Rather than spout theory, Picasso offers pronouncements and quips from his high post.
